Amazon shipping to the Bahamas

Shopping on from the Bahamas

Amazon (.com, the flagship U.S. store) is a popular destination for the Bahamas's online shoppers. The American behemoth has the best product selection in the world, stocking and selling virtually every imaginable product from every brand and store you have —and haven't— heard of.

The short answer is: No - very few products ship to the Bahamas. About two thirds of Amazon stores (third-party sellers) that make up the bulk of merchants on Amazon don't ship internationally at all. So don't feel left out - every other country bar the U.S. is having trouble ordering US Amazon products and shipping internationally.

Why won't ship to the Bahamas?

The main reason is Customs. As you may have already experienced, getting products shipped through Customs in the Bahamas can take time, and money. If a friend or relative has sent you a package from abroad, it was likely held up, inspected, and subjected to import duty, which you then had to pay to have the package released and delivered to you. It's such a poor customer experience that many US stores and brands prefer to avoid it altogether.

The second reason is added complexity. Some products (electronic, for example), require local customizations to function in the Bahamas or comply with its regulations. Beyond the product itself, there's the added complexity of offering an international warranty, dealing with returns, and localisation of marketing, packaging materials, and after-sale support.

Then there's the shipping itself. To ship a product from US to the Bahamas, the shipper (the seller, not Amazon) needs to:
